Adam and Joe scoop three Silvers at the Sony Radio Awards

The Sony Radio Academy Awards took place in London tonight (Monday 11th May 2009)

The Adam and Joe Show on BBC 6Music was nominated for 4 awards, and they have won Silvers (ie. 2nd place) in three of the categories: Comedy, Entertainment and Competition. They didn’t come in the top 3 for the Listener Participation Award.. so as lazybones points out in our forum Text The Nation clearly isn’t the ‘Nations Favourite Feature’ :)

Adam and Joe never exclude, but rather invite the listener to join them in a parallel universe. Their show combines banter, creativity, honesty, self-deprecation and the comedy song.

SILVERAdam and Joe – Video Wars

Presenters: Adam Buxton, Joe Cornish & Garth Jennings
Producer: Jude Adam
Interactive Editor, BBC2 & 6 Music: Clare Hudson
Assistant Producer: Claire Slevin
Assistant Content Producer: Jane Long

An ambitious and innovative entry, delivered at a particularly challenging time at the BBC for competitions. The entry made use of a digital network in new ways and resulted in high quality entries from listeners. A strong and successful interactive dimension and overall offer, very much in tune with the sound and appeal of the programme and the network.

Adam and Joe are self confessed big kids. They have unashamedly made a living out of not wanting to grow and get proper jobs. As such they represent a nation of 30-somethings who believed ‘Back to the Future’ when it promised hover boards, believed we would be flying our cars around by now and who still think of themselves as part of a Jedi Generation! Balancing this ongoing disappointment with the world around them, whilst at the same time viewing their surroundings with the amazement of a child seeing fireworks for the first time, is what Adam and Joe are all about. The topics are vast, the discussion is fast paced and often equally as dumb as it is genius. They are a mass of contradictions and about turns, which is what keeps the listener engaged and more importantly guessing what will happen next.
